ok, as a backup to last post i checked my carbs again

float chamber 1-3 were perfect, floats set correctly, float 4, the height ajusting nut was loose making float way too high, put screw back in correctly.

the bike fired up and purred perfectly, idled corectly and when revved the rev metre would come straight back down one throttle cloased again

one problem, did a check on the oil, and it was totally full, opened the cap adn could see the oil, (not good) i drained the oil, it smelled like petrol or paint the oil is pretty. more like water than oil.

iv replaced the oil and put a new oil filter on today, but the bike wont start, we tried to bumb it but it backfired (like a firecracker) as first the engine started but then it died then backfired. tried it 2 times and same thing happened, we have checked the vacum pipes and other things. does any1 have any ideas on what is wrong?
